Thoughts from Pastor Miller
My Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
So much is happening at Holy Trinity! Please read all the following announcements and participate fully in our ministry at 65th and Central Park West.
I particularly ask you to make every attempt to be present this Sunday, October 15, for Mass and the congregational meeting following. Enormous energy, vision, and commitment have gone into creating our new constitution and planning for an exciting 150th anniversary year.
I look forward to seeing you Sunday morning.
Yours in Christ,
Pastor Wilbert Miller
